It’s unique – rowing against water, that is. At least, it’s unique in the gym world. Until WaterRower designed a rower whose internal paddle used water as the resistance, gym goers couldn’t imagine actually rowing against water. Imagine being inside and feeling and hearing the water in your boat swish and swirl as you row – takes you to another level.
In June, 2006, InsideOut became the first (and still currently) the only gym in town to offer Rowing machine workout classes on the WaterRower, a specially designed rowing machine with a water tank at its helm to provide authentic “water” resistance. When you are rowing on one of our machines, you hear the water, feel its resistance, and get as close to being in a scull boat as you possibly can without actually hitting the water.
We have 10 certified Rowing instructors who teach a variety of classes each week, including, WaterCrew, Indo-Row, Row-Flex (a rowing and weight combo class) and Zen Row.
Rowing as sport has long been considered one of the premiere combination workouts available. That means you get both an aerobic and a weight workout in one. You’ll burn between 400 -600 calories in a single Rowing class (depending upon your weight and fitness level), and you’ll get an all over body workout. In fact, Rowing works 84% of the muscles in the body with special focus on legs, butt, arms, shoulders, and back.
Celebrated by athletes and celebrities alike, and dubbed The Perfect Calorie Burn, Indo-Row is a one-of-a-kind indoor rowing workout that will truly change the way you think about group exercise.
Created by Josh Crosby, a World Rowing Champion and professional endurance athlete, and Jay Blahnik, renowned fitness program developer and award-winning instructor, Indo-Row is perfect for people of all fitness levels.
Working in teams, partners and as one crew, Indo-Row provides a transforming total body workout that challenges the body and focuses the mind.
We continue to add classes to our roster to keep up with demand, so check out the class calendar below for a time that suits your schedule. We require all members to complete the Rowing Orientation before they begin Rowing on a regular basis, and you can sign up for an orientation at the front desk.
Once you’ve been through orientation, you can begin taking classes or Row on your own. We have both Level 1 and Level 2 classes in our Rowing Program, so that you can get experience from the beginner stage through advanced.
WaterCrew – 30 – 45 minutes of light to moderate intensity
Zen Row – From music to approach, it’s a Zen-like atmosphere
Row Flex – half an hour of rowing followed by half an hour of weights
Indo-Row – team race rows – more intense
The best part about Rowing is the fun. Classes are set to music and designed to help members access that endorphin thing. We have a great time, burn tons of calories, and WORK THE ENTIRE BODY.
